|Aachi & Ssipak - Anime Review|
Diggin through the archives of anime this time I purposefully looked for something along the veins of the more recently released Panty & Stocking series…and oh boy there’s quite a few madcap anime’s that play to the same tune however since this title was made in South Korea it’s technically not a Japanese Anime….bah..who cares about that minute detail, I don’t remember ever reviewing something this zany before anyway so let’s take a look at
Lulz……This movie really gives a whole new meaning to the phrase “Shit Happens”
Storyline – (Another crazy one)
In the future due to an energy crisis the government has found a way to make people’s sh*t into a viable energy source…so to that end the government enforces a law where every citizen must have an ID chip placed inside their anus for monitoring purposes and to reward people for contributing their sh*t for fuel the government hands out extremely addictive, popsicle-like "Juicybars", which in turn also makes people constipated.
Our two lovable characters Aachi & Ssipak are essentially street punks who rob people for their Juicybars whilst trying to get rich but through this initial misadventure they get caught up with a violent gang of mutant rejects, a beautiful yet aspiring porn actress and a crazy cyborg police officer
Hmm…..so what’s missing here
oh lets not forget to throw in tons of toilet humor and make a bunch of Hollywood movie jabs
Sounds like a good time to me.
The animation had a hint of the studio 4oc style imo but really reminded me of how Studio Gonzo like to do things where their character designs are purposefully drawn lazily but the backgrounds and surroundings are quite beautifully animated…and that’s where this show falls into.
Not to take anything away from the Korean animators mind you…I’m just drawing some parallel’s
There’s a ton of violence and quite a few cool action scenes which feature a crazy cyborg police officer that really stands out each time he has a scene.
Overall the animation is pretty hectic in terms of movement but ultimately I was impressed with how it all came together to compliment the style of this movie
And hey aren’t those little blue mutants the same imaginary creatures in Welcome to the NHK…maybe it’s just me….@_@
Absolutely forgettable to be honest, and I just finished watching it. BGM is un-noticeable imo and the only standout things are the voice actors who play these zany characters…and that they do pretty well
Well overall I’d say all the characters are likeable in this twisted reality. From our bickering two main characters to the porn director to the entire crazy mutant army and of course our silent but deadly robot super soldier…err I mean cyborg police officer.
All the characters are pretty humorous and play well off each other, so overall I’d say they were all quite likeable
At first I thought this was going to be a run of the mill toilet joke movie with little substance…but to my surprise they kept things going with a albeit crazy but central storyline, funny toilet humour, extreme violence and a bucket load of sexual innuendos.
I found the more I watched the more I was enjoying it!
As far as one off movies go this is pretty good. I mean it’s not all that long, has great visuals and definitely kept me entertained…so yeah…if you like dark twisted toilet humour and can take a lot of violence up in your face……I think you’ll like this
FUN FACT: According to Twitchfilm.net MTV has licensed rights to adapt this movie into a series…..will it actually happen tho..who knows but yeah an English dub would make this particular title all the more better if you ask me…it’s pretty much in the same vein as P&S and Dead Leaves for that matter so yeah there’s certainly an existing fanbase for these kinds of titles….so again I’d say check it out if you like this kinda thing
Aachi & Ssipak: High Watchable
